Stumbled across this marvelous YouTube channel called Flick Vault – Full HD Movies last month. Was looking for something short to watch, something perfect for a work night. Out jumped a guy in shades in a film called Blind Corner. Apart from finding out it was also known as Man In The Dark, I went in “blind” so to speak. One hour twenty minutes later I couldn’t believe how well written that little film was. A really perfect thriller. Ok! it does fill in some time with a ballad crooner called Ronnie Carroll singing during a few varied intervals. However, the drama was tightly written and comes highly recommended. Continue reading
Well I’d been waiting for quite sometime for the invite to arrive through my letterbox from the BBC’s long running show Desert Island Disc’s. It hadn’t come. So I decided to do my own. Continue reading
There I was in my teenage years lying on the back room sofa all alone drifting in and out of consciousness. Not only had I caught glandular fever but the doctor, in his wisdom, had prescripted the wrong antibiotics. The mix up had caused my whole body to breakout in a rash. It looked like scarlet fever and I was beside myself! In between the crazy itching and bouts of fever sweats I’d become drowsy from all the medication. I was hallucinating. There I was making my way up the Stairway to Heaven! Continue reading
After falling asleep on a bench, I stagger home. Science fiction mission completed. Shaking the space dust from my fur as I pack my trusty spacesuit away. Clamber into my hammock with a giant glass of Long Island Iced Tea. Yep, it’s got an umbrella and a slice of lemon. Dressing gown and slippers, check! Time to chill. I grab the notepad off the sideboard. OK let’s look at this years “to watch list!” It’s monstrous. Haha Continue reading
Robots might not quite be here yet but it’s getting close. All through our lives the medium of film and television has tempted us with visions of the future. Whether these mechanical friends help us in our everyday lives or plot to destroy us in some devious fashion. Some are heroes, others turn evil. Keeping us company or terrorising us as we cower behind the sofa. Robots are beloved and always part of popular culture.
I decided to ask my family which are their most favourite robot. Which robot comes to mind when asked that question. We are putting android, cyborg and robot in the same category. I put this question to Mrs Louise Wolf and our two wolf cubs (young adults) Nyah and Kofi. We all decided that it was impossible to put them in a ranked list so the following are just ones we love equally for different reasons in no particular order. Feel free to join in if you wish.
Mikey Wolf’s Favorite Robots. Continue reading
Well flying through the galaxies needs a soundtrack. As I blast off ready to explore the universe you are welcome to join me as we watch distant comets transcend through the Milky Way. Drift through interstellar clouds of nebula’s and wonder at the growing supernova of Betelgeuse. Imagining watching C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate through Roy Batty’s eyes. Shooting through meteorite storms as we discuss extraterrestrial life, the human evolution path, existentialism and the possible outcomes of artificial intelligence and pondering thoughtfully on time travel.
We dream together through the stars.

Christmas is upon us. I’ve always preferred the eve to the day, just feels more mellow and chilled. A couple of drinks on the go and the hand keeps reaching for the snack bowls. Perfect time for a movie or two before the big day comes. A christmas eve roast is cooking, the Bushmills Irish Whiskey is a flowing. A Miracle on 34th Street (1947) is cued up ready for watching later. Christmas is here. Continue reading
After a long good life, my movie watching buddy and sidekick Mighty Moses has risen up to Valhalla. With years of helping me fight the tyranny of this world and the onslaught of evil monsters, his final day did come. Ever ready for battle, this brave boy once took on a whole alien invasion fleet after I lay paralysed from a pesky laser blast. Taking out the boss alien as the rest of the ET SOB’s couldn’t get off Earth fast enough.
